Choice hotels is already the bottom of the barrel when it comes to hotel chains, but this location really sells it. Need some flexibility in your booking? Forget about it. Looking for a nice location? Look elsewhere.
I would book again if I were booking...More

I stayed here to take the bar exam. I highly recommend it. Much cheaper than the Marriott and you have all that you need. My room came with a refrigerator and microwave (I suggest requesting it a few weeks in advance) and a relatively nice...More

This was our third stay at this hotel, all related to UC Berkeley visits. This refurbished hotel is very clean and a good value in Oakland. Although located downtown, it is much nicer than some similarly priced but cheesy motels elsewhere in the city. Parking...More

Not really. But I will say that Chinatown is only a few blocks away and, for me, I didn't find the walk dangerous. The streets, however, can appear dark and empty with stragglers hanging out on the street corners.
